This weekend Jodie continues our series on the Old Testament book of Job, with the title, ‘Mythbusting God’ from chapter 38 to chapter 40 verse 5.
At both our services, we will have a special update on SRE (Specialised Religious Education) and the need in 2017.
During our service, we’ll have our weekly question and answer time, and our Senior Minister Jodie will be answering these questions:
- Isn’t Elihu being self-righteous when he says that Job’s cry of pain is ‘wickedness and evil’?
- Given that God is pleased by our righteousness and angered by our sin, doesn’t this mean he is affected by our actions, even though they don’t control him?
- When Elihu tells Job to “beware of turning to evil, which you seem to prefer to affliction”, does this mean that Elihu thinks Job is being punished by God for his sin?
- When and where does Job live in relation to Jerusalem?
- Is the thunder actually God’s voice?
- Since the Romans 7 reading suggests that a person is only convicted of their sin when they know the law, then what happens to those who don’t hear the law?
Our 8am Sunday service will be a Holy Communion Second Order AAPB service.
If you’re wanting to check out our church we’d really love you to visit us on Saturday at 5pm for a contemporary service with kids’ program and dinner afterwards, or come along on Sunday at 8am for a Prayer Book service.
If you can’t make it in person, you’re welcome to jump online to watch the service (with the same sermon and many other items) at www.oakflats.tv.
